Shrubs For A White Garden

One of the most famous gardens in England is the White Garden at Sissinghurst Castle in Kent. The estate, which included the 18th century tower was bought by Vita Sackville West and her husband Harold Nicholson, back in the 1930’s. It was here, they lovingly created, what became one of the most famous gardens in the world. In actuality, the White Garden is a relatively small segment of the entire gardens at Sissinghurst but this ‘garden room’ is possibly the most renowned garden design to employ the concept of a single colour theme and does it, so very effectively.
The White Garden concept has subsequently been replicated by many contemporary garden designers… Vita actually referred to this space as her white, green and grey garden, for it was here, that she used her monochromatic colour scheme and textural foliage to such stunning effect.
